The Duke is Melbourne's oldest hotel and has a rich history as a social destination for Melburnians and visitors.
A truly great pub is driven by the experiences and memories created within its walls.
It is the company of good friends - whether they are your buddies from school or 200 of your new best friends cheering for the same underdog team to get up for the win.
It is your favourite beer served icy cold accompanied by the best burger you have ever tasted or the “blow your socks off” cocktail bought for you by the cutest guy in the room.
It is bonding over your team’s win or loss; it is the anticipation of heading out to see your favourite band or winding down after a hard week at work.
It is the sneaky afternoon beer on a work day or the long, lazy Friday business lunch where deals are done and friendships are solidified.
It is where you first laid eyes across the bar on your now wife who told you to get lost when you pulled out your cheesiest pick-up line.
It is the fall back when you just want to go somewhere that feels like your lounge room with really great food and beer literally on tap.
Our success as a truly great pub is tied to you. The punter, diner, drinker, socialiser – whatever you want to call it – you create the atmosphere and the tone we just provide the venue.
The Duke is a destination for the people – we love everyone – visitor, local, worker, out-of-towner.
We are committed to creating truly great pubs and we hope you love being party of the story.
